April Doodle Crate was Fabric Dying & Basket Weaving! Doodle Crate is one of the latest additions to the KiwiCo family. Geared toward kids 9+, it inspires young makers to learn new skills and gain creative confidence through craft and art projects.

The instructions are clear and easy to follow and broken down step by step. Extension ideas are included with the instructions – but fewer this month as there were two involved projects.
We dyed all the t-shirt yarn using the included Kool-Aid. We didn’t feel comfortable not washing it, so we did!
I was thrilled with how these baskets turned out. Mine was the ombre and thought it was a PITA to make, I loved the result. The kids’ turned out nice too 🙂 My daughter is 6 – several years younger than the suggested age – and there’s no way she would have been able to weave these baskets. Some of it was quite difficult, so this one did turn into a parent (dad) job. But I love them and the kids had fun dying the yarn!
